I didn't die!!!

Monday, August 08, 2005



But it was close run thing. My times we as follows:

Swim - 00:41:25
Bike - 01:36:39
Run - 01:01:37

Total - 03:30:24
Place - 666

I'll write more and put up the rest of the pictures when I get a chance. In the meantime, if I ever express any interest in doing another one, have me restrained.

That's what Steve Redgrave said after winning his fourth consecutive olympic gold.

I'm sure you know what came next.

PS. Well done!

Top effort, especially to get such a desirable finish position. Are you playing your records backwards in the hope of finding Satanic messages?

It's perhaps ironic that my psyche-up song on the iPod before I set off was Evil by Interpol.

Where did I learn to speak in sentences? It certainly doesn't appear to have been hereditary. However, I'm sorry to say that the ability to keep my mouth shut I most definitely did get from you and as a consequence swallowed a pint or two of Thames in the forty minutes I was flailing around in it.

It would appear that your efforts in the triathlon coincided with an upturn in english cricket fortunes. you must continue to run, cycle and swim for the remainder of the series..

Top effort just to complete one of the dociplines. Briiiilliant!

Blimey - tough crowd - it's coming, but these things can't be rushed and my brain is still a little fuzzy from the weekend's effort.

congratulations young man, that is a fine effort.

666th? must be an omen.
